Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha is one of the few Bollywood actresses who was not seen in a kissing scene. She says she won’t kiss on screen as she is not comfortable doing that. “Obviously there are inhibitions. That’s why I don’t do it in my films.”
Sonakshi will be next seen in AR Murugadoss’ action drama Akira. Not many actresses in Bollywood have tried their hand at martial arts and stunts like Hollywood stars.
Sonakshi said, “I am happy that I have got noticed for my hard work. I went through a lot of physical training for this film as doing action, applying punches and kicking high is not an easy thing. You have to be fit and only then can you do such things. Also, actresses don’t get a chance to showcase their abilities and action in Bollywood. In Hollywood, they give actresses opportunities to do action and other stuff. I hope with Akira, actresses in Bollywood would start getting action roles and perform stunts.”
Apart from doing action sequences in the film, understanding her character’s emotional feelings and situation was the most challenging for the Dabangg actress.
“Getting into the mindset of the character was challenging for me. The pain, the situation she has been through and to portray that was not easy for me since I have never been in such a situation and I have never faced such an environment. And then, learning martial arts and doing stunts in the movie also took a lot out of me,” she said.
Though her films have had commercial success, Sonakshi has always been criticised for not choosing performance-oriented roles. She feels Akira will change that perception. – CINEWS
